There’s no more important factor in evaluating Sunday night’s Giants-Eagles game: the offensive lines for each team will write the script for this contest.
The Giants are on the descent, an annual ritual among faithful watchers of Big Blue. And it’s their own fault.
Tom Coughlin didn’t mince words. “This is as big a disappointment as we have had around here in a long time,” he said after the Giants’ poor showing Sunday night.
Last year, the Eagles destroyed the Giants’ season with a 28-point onslaught in the final seven minutes. This time, Andy Reid’s team used a slow and excruciating method to hurt Big Blue once again.
This may be the most challenging portion of the Giants’ schedule, and not just because they need to grind out wins against some of their most difficult opponents.
